For the price, these are a good safety measure for keeping inquisitive fingers out of electrical outlets. They insert easily, but are VERY difficult to remove. They're really simple in design, with a flat plastic plate and two prongs. Other types I've used actually curve around the whole outlet face though, which I feel is a little better design.
I suppose the difficulty in removal is both a pro and a con - there's no way a child will be able to get this off of the outlet. However, I've used other brands of outlet protectors, and they're much easier to remove because they have a fingernail slot, while still remaining secure enough that I feel that they're safe.
I've several kinds of caps about the house of various brands and styles. I like this one as it is easier for me to remove than some of the other designs but it does the same job. This is easy to place into the outlet as other styles, but this style is easier for me remove when using the outlet without getting a small flat screw driver as the one on the lower outlet.
Pros: Clear Instructions, Compact, Easy Installation, Easy Replacement, Easy to Use, Eco-Friendly, Lots of Features, Nice Design
Got these as a quick grab. They are made a little thin and do not seem to be as durable as I thought. Otherwise, I would of given it 5 stars. Don't get me wrong; they get the job done. There were plenty in the box to use on all our outlets. The safety aspect of it is good to. I tried to pull one off and it took a little finagling, but I got it. That gave me a good sense of security that my toddler son would have a hard time taking one off thus allowing good amount of time to stop him. Overall, good for the value.
I did would not recommend these outlet safety caps because they just seem to be made cheaply. As that is said, if you want to buy 12 caps for a low price and only need it for 1 or 2 years then these caps might work for you.
As shown in picture, these caps are transparent and that is a plus. They worked very well with my new outlets (less than 2 years old).
These caps seem cheaply made. They did not work well with my older outlets (over 20 years old). These caps could be easily removed from the older outlets, other caps were difficult to use.
If your house or at least the outlets are the newer style then these caps might be just what you need, for me I did not like them and preferred paying twice as much to get better quality.
Pros: Easy Installation, Easy Replacement, Easy to Use
Cons: low quality, might be easy for toddler to remove on old outlets
These clear plastic electrical caps almost visually disappear when put into an electrical socket, they go into the socket very easily and add a nice bit of security to having little fingers and hands exploring the slots on the electrical sockets in my home. There are enough caps in this package to baby proof most of the areas that our little ones cruise.
Pros: Easy Installation, Easy Replacement, Easy to Use, Nice Design
We have a day care center in our home and with infants, toddlers and preschool we must protect them at all cost and with electrical outlets we must prevent any child from putting anything into sockets so these come in handy to be used as we expand our day care and expose additional sockets. we even them up stairs because friends that visit bring children and we must plug in sockets also to protect them.
With a baby in the house who is starting to crawl all over the place I wanted to project him from our outlets. These caps are easy to install and with the clear plastic you can't really even see them. What is great as well is they are easy to remove when you actually need to use the outlets. Simple and inexpensive way to keep the little ones safe and sound.
